I am building a custom gaming pc and I assembled everything and booted it up with no problems. I then went on to install several programs and games and was on for a few hours. I shutdown my pc and the next day when I try to turn on my pc it is stuck on the "Press DEL or F2 to enter UEFI BIOS Settings". I can't turn it off using the power button and I'm forced to unplug it and replug it to shut it down. I have tried putting the SSD in different slots and it lets me boot up the 1st time but after I shut down it gets stuck again! I have the latest version of BIOS. HELP!!!
